Lifelike Mechanical Toad companion pet can be learned from a BOE low level schematic. It's a world drop so there's no point farming it by killing stuff. Your best bet is to check if someone is selling it in the Auction House for a low price. Not everyone knows how valuable the schematic is, so it's possible there's one for sale even now, for less than 100g. Better go check it out!
I've usually spotted 2 schematics every month. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Realm size has a big impact on this.
If you want try your luck farming the schematic it instead, level 50-59 monsters, preferably dungeons are your best choice. Here's the top zones where it's been dropping. They are huge, there's lots of monsters around and while unlikely, everyone has a chance of dropping a schematic. Who knows what kind of schematic it will be!
- Blackrock Spire
- Blackrock Depths
Learn it or sell it?

The mechanical toads on the other hand are a bit trickier. If there's no engineers on your realm that sell these actively, a toad can very well sell for even 1-2k, just like wooden frogs which look identical. However, most players aren't patient and sell these for 100-200g instead. Just hope your realm doesn't have impatient engineers, as there's no point buying them and relisting if there's more coming. =)
Learn the schematic if.. You have engineering and there's no robot frogs in the auction house.
Sell the schematic if.. You have engineering and there's more than 2 robot frogs in the auction house.
